Standard Service Charges

Standard Service Charges

All hospitals in the United States are required to post their price list of standard procedures online. This pricing information, known as a charge master or a charge table, is designed to help you make informed decisions when selecting a hospital for treatment.

Humboldt General Hospital is committed to helping you understand your financial responsibilities with regard to the medical services you receive. The amount you are charged is determined in large part by the length of your hospital stay (for inpatient care), procedures performed, required testing (such as Radiology or Laboratory services), and any supplies, medications/pharmaceuticals or special equipment that may be needed.

Please understand that specific charges provided in the charge master are HGH’s base prices and do not necessarily reflect your financial responsibility. Hospital charges are based on the type of care provided and can differ from patient to patient for the same service. The differences between patients are related to complexity and complications, or varying treatments needed due to the patient’s health. Prices for surgeries can vary depending on the surgical provider and the amount of time needed in the operating room. Price does not include physician fees, additional tests that may be needed, anesthesia and radiology professional fees.

This charge master provides some general guidance as to charges for the various services we provide; however, the amounts listed in the charge master do not factor in insurance, deductibles, copays, coinsurance, out-of-pocket maximums or other variables. Therefore, the charges listed are never what the patient pays. Your ultimate financial liability is more closely tied to your insurance coverage and benefits than these charges.

We recommend that you speak with your health insurance provider to assist you in determining your financial responsibility for any service you are considering, or any service that may be provided to you at our hospital.

Humboldt General Hospital also provides resources to assist you in obtaining a more accurate financial estimate based on your healthcare benefits related to the services and the care you receive. Our representatives will be happy to help you at (775) 623-5222, ext. 1130.
